Here's the scoop, We've had our girls for 7 months now, and not one person has every complained about them. Last month my next door neighbor moved out and while the landlord was cleaning the unit they saw my chickens. So last week the letter arrived telling me that my chickens put me in violation of my lease and with San Diego Zoning Regulations. I am so sad and angry I'm not sure what to do. We are planning on moving out of state soon so we really need a good reference from these pickle brains, but at the same time I want to go in and scream at them. I've put the girls up to be rehomed https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=95207, but I really don't want to. The wording of the laws here in San Diego are so vague. I can have up to 25 Fowl and/or Rabbits if they are kept 50 feet away from a residence. They then go on to define Fowl as birds kept for meat or eggs. Which ours are kept as pets. The funny thing is that the landlord allows rabbits! Screwy huh! Since we keep them as pets I am thinking this law doesn't even apply to us. When I called Code Enforcement they said yes it applies to all chickens and rabbits, no matter if you have 1 or 25. I know several tenants who have rabbits, and they are not housed 50 feet away from the next unit. Is this animal discrimination or what! So do I fight for the good of all chicken kind or do I cowtoe to these people?
